Oily skin is an annoying trait which is defined by excessive shine and unwanted greasiness.
Excessive work by skin professionals is put into avoiding this. To do so, it all starts with measurement of oiliness, which is what our skin Sebum Module does.
The sebum reader in the DermaLab Combo gives a quick objective assessment of skin oiliness. To document research and to show to clients.
The measurement principle is based upon a sebum collecting strip and a strip reading device, which is built into the DermaLab Combo.
After sebum is absorbed into the strip it will become translucent. The change in the light reflecting properties of the skin sebum collecting strip is measured to assess the amount of absorbed sebum.
A special oil-specific film material is used, and therefore the influence of skin surface water (sweat) is virtually eliminated.
To avoid batch-to-batch variation an offset calibration is performed on each individual strip.
The Sebum Module is available for the DermaLab Combo, and of course the measurement is visualized by the DermaLab software.
